I am 6'2", 165lbs, and ski the 186cm mounted telemark with Hammerheads. When these hit the deep stuff, ooohwee! they are really really fun. Skiing these tele made me feel invincible, never even a thought of tip dive, control with power at high speeds, slashed turns on a dime. Also, incredibly stable on straightlines and runouts, more so than any other ski I've skied tele. When the snow gets chopped, they still perform really well, but I found that they are so wide that my tips would bash into each other on tighter turns, had to adjust my skiing style to accommodate for the width, but i feel like I'll get the hang of that pretty quick. On groomers and harder snow, watch out, they are a little dangerous and hard to control. Weren't awful, but definitely had some moments where I got squirrely...Not a one ski quiver, but don't claim to be. For pow days, really psyched that these are in my repertoire.
